“Good stay, better then a hotel”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

I was in NFLD for a week and we had 6 in our party. We couldn't find a hotel with space for 6 of us so we booked HillView. We booked a 3 bedroom suite. However upon arrival our 3 bedroom was already booked. Instead we were given 2 , 2 bedroom rooms. This was fine for us and maybe even better. The rooms had dishes, silver wear, pots and pans, fridge, stove, microwave. It was better then a hotel because of all that we had in the room. It was a good size living room, nice bathroom and 2 good size bedrooms. Beds were pretty comforterable. If I was going back to NFLD I would look into staying here again. Its close to the mall, down town and to other attractions. Also very close to the airport.

Room Tip: No elevators so if you don't want to climb stairs ask for a bottom floor

Unfortunately, due to the complete lack of other options in St. John's I shared a 2 bedroom suite with another pilot here for 1 night. This is an extended stay apartment and not really a hotel. The location is not convenient. The suite was acceptable, except for the fact that circumstances forced us to share. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Shared a two bedroom apartment with friends while in Newfoundland touring around. The apartment was literally like a home away from home. The staff administering this complex - and there are several apartment buildings, were very genial and helpful - well as all Newfoundlanders are to be sure. The kitchen is stocked with the essentials (cutlery, pots, pans, dishes) and the units are well maintained and the grounds are clean and manicured. Ample parking space and a good central location from which to venture out into St. Johns. Cost may seem high but is actually less then your normal hotel - and you get the advantage of the kitchenette.
So site is recommended. Oh and free Wi-Fi on site as well as cable TV.

Stayed in a one bedroom for a week in August 2013. Suite had lots of space and the bathroom was clean and renovated. The rest of the suite was quite old and dated but there is lots of space. There is no air conditioning.
Check in was a long process that involved the one staff having to answer the phone multiple times and kept checking on papers that had nothing to do with me getting my key.
Location is away from downtown but there are lots of stores, reaturants etc within easy walking distance.

We gathered that this was not your typical hotel and it isn't. It's basically short-term housing -- dated apartments converted and rented as suites. But despite many of the reviews here, it was very clean, there was free WiFi (some of the most reliable and fast I've seen, in fact) and the entire staff was helpful and friendly from the cleaning staff to the front desk. If you need a short-term apartment, this is definitely the place. It's location is also perfect, right across the street from a mall, a Shoppers Drug Mart and a Tim Hortons. It's right in the center of everything.

If I had one complaint, it would be the noise. Whoever was above us had kids that were running back and forth on the floor until 11pm and you could hear every thump. There was also a bus tour of college kids staying in some of the rooms and they came home drunk and were screaming up and down the halls. None of this would be under the control of the staff -- but given the economy, size and nature of the patrons, it's inevitable.

I stayed 3 different times mostly in June and 1 night in July 2013. Big oil and gas show was in town and most hotels sold out.
The staff was helpful. I don't have a pet with me and I don't smoke, so it was easy for me to get a room, here. This hotel is close to Signal Hill, The Rooms [a museum ] and Downtown. Downtown has lots of pubs, live music and shopping. Artists like living here apparently. It is close to the airport, too. There are shopping centers on the way to airport. I found the local people very friendly and helpful. A drugstore with some groceries and a dollar store are right across the street near the bus stop. I found it convenient with wifi it met my needs. I would stay here again.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment for 4 nights in June. The smell of mildew and mold in the entire apartment was awful, the bathroom was the worst. We had to purchase deodorizer spray in order to be able to stay in the apartment. It was hot and there is no air conditioning. I would not stay here again.

Room Tip: No restaurant and no pool.
